As of September 2016, Hans Laheij will take over as Vice President Sales & Marketing at SCHOTTEL GmbH, assuming the responsibilities of Dr. Jens-Erk Bartels, who is retiring. Hans Laheij has extensive experience and expertise in the area of ship propulsion. After earning a degree in Business Administration in the Netherlands, he began his career with Lips BV in the Asia/Pacific region. Upon his return to the Netherlands and following the takeover by Finnish competitor Wärtsilä, he steadily took on greater responsibilities: assuming a management position in Singapore in 2005 and, as of 2011, serving in Shanghai as Area Sales Director for the Middle East & Asia region. “Hans Laheij has distinguished himself through a high level of expertise, extensive knowledge of one of our most important target markets and his intercultural background. We are pleased to have recruited him as Vice President of Sales & Marketing in order to continue expanding global sales”, says CEO  Dr. Christian Strahberger. Hans Laheij, a Dutchman, will perform his duties at SCHOTTEL headquarters in Spray / Rhein.

Dr. Jens-Erk Bartels is Retiring
He will be succeeding Dr. Jens-Erk Bartels, who has deftly managed Sales & Marketing since April 2009. Thanks to his impressive market knowledge and propulsion expertise, Dr. Bartels significantly shaped the success of SCHOTTEL. His leadership led to a considerable increase in the business for new units, an overall restructuring of sales for a stronger customer orientation as well as the introduction of a communicative and uniform public image. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerhard Jensen, Managing Director of SCHOTTEL Industries holding company, and Dr. Strahberger appreciate Dr. Bartels’ outstanding service and wish him all the best for his retirement beginning in October.
